Background: I’m a Heavy Equipment Tech (mechanic) in the oilsands where everything is super safety sensitive. 2009 I am diagnosed with spinal stenosis and experience neck and shoulder pain. In Dec. 2013 I was pulled from the floor due to legal dispute over my medications between union and company. I was given modified duties off and on for the following 2 years but kept on payroll as full time. This was stopped in Jan. 2016 when I was hospitalized for an (arguably) unrelated condition and I was transitioned to LTD. Since then, I have had a few short spurts of modified duty again but all have failed and I am now filling out CPP-D.
So here’s my question: What do I consider my last day worked at my previous job?
Is it a) when they pulled me from the floor?
Or b) when I was in the hospital and I was put on LTD?
Or c) the last day I worked a modified shift?
There’s lots of variables in play here and I am finding it a real poser. I think I know the answer is b) but I am not certain.
